Judge’s decision to deny protective order was “reasonable application” of law, internal review committee says
Concord Monitor November 30,2021
“No one can dispute that the victim in this case was in extreme danger, and the system failed her when she courageously looked to the courts for help,” said Lyn Schollett, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. “This review affirms that the courts are not using the very plain language of the statute to make common sense decisions in protective order cases. Instead, judges in New Hampshire have essentially re-written the law and added requirements for victims to get relief that go far beyond what the legislature intended — requirements that show a fundamental misunderstanding of domestic violence.”
